-- people that buy on the individual market. insurance companies used to love selling insurance to the people. by and large, they were male, healthy, single. weren't going to have a baby. people who probably never use insurance they were healthy, they would never have to avail themselves of coverage that if could sell them junk plans that were cheat but that didn't have much in them. god forbid you get sick. if they start going back and grandfathering in more of the junk policies, i don't know how that strengthens the law. think it weakens it. >> david kay johnston, the target that jay carney drew, pretty narrow one. people in the market place who cannot afford or find a plan that they can afford. now, most, a lot of people we are talking about will get subsidies in the, in the system, so the affordability factor actually applies to very, very few people. >> yeah, most people will actually be better off in the situation they're describing under the plans. but i have a different take on this. lawrence, i don't think the president ever meant, you will have the exact plan you have. th

you to tell us how -- the affordable care act is doing, compared to the early days of the massachusetts law. >> the big issue, it is too early to make a strong conclusion. the bottom line is people don't sign up until they have to. >> we are doing better than massachusetts. as secretary sebelius said .3% in massachusetts. 1 1/2% of the federal level. goal of 7 million. that is not a relevant comparison. relevant comparison happen in march. we need new focus on not the week to week and day-to-day, to date. >> professor, quickly, what do you make of roughly all most four times people enrolling in medicaid than -- than purchasing with or without subsidies, the approximately sees from the -- policies from exchanges. >> we had a program that was free, got higher enrollment than the program people had to pay. people soon up for what its free first. once again as the deadline approaches for the mandate. people rush in, healthy people coming in towards the march 31st date. >> e.j.dion, democrats listening to the professor, professor gruber here tonight, democrats in the house are

party is winning. they brought us to the brink of economic disaster. the tail is wagging the dog in the house of representatives and the senate. that civil war is going to continue. it is really horribly damaged the republican brand. and this, you know, the rebranding that my counterpart has desperately clawing at to try to make. not working out so well if you lack at results from last night particularly in virginia. >> howard dean, the republican establishment has finally found both its voice and its tactics. pouring money into the races that they were not really fighting in the past. >> it is very interesting. if you look at the voting record from the two candidates in alabama. i bet you there is not a dime's worth of difference a year from now in terms of what would happen to either one of them. the real war is not the civil war of the republican party. the war on women. i thought the extraordinary thing last night was the gender gap in virginia. had it not been for women voters none of the three top candidates, attorney general, lieutenant-governor, and governor elect mcauliffe.

health care for a while, average increase was double digits. if they actually got sick and used the insurance they might find the next year their premiums had gone up or insurer may have dropped them altogether because they have a pre-existing condition. women were charged as much as double compared to men. so this is a market that wasn't working. and a whole lot of people were dissatisfied. what we have done to increase the consumer protections that are in place for the families and those folks. we have said, you can't drop people when they get sick and need it most. we said that you can't -- have lifetime limits so that suddenly people think they have got insurance. next thing they know they have $ $30,000, $40,000 out of pocket expenses. over the long term that's the right thing to do. but in this transition, there are going to be folks who get a cancellation letter when a website is not working. they're looking and saying, what am i going to do now. we have to make sure they're not feeling as if they have been betrayed by an effort that -- that is designed to help them. >> do yo

what president kennedy said, let us never negotiate out of fear but let us never fear to negotiate. i believe that. this has brought us the progress that was achieved this weekend. for the first time in a decade we have halted the progress on iran's nuclear program. key parts of the program will be rolled back. [ applause ] >> today the "new york times" reports that the obama administration and secretary of state john kerry have been having secret communications for several months and that the three decade communication stalemate was ended when senator john kerry began sending messages through the sultan. it was set exactly what the iranians needed to hear. he thinks this is a terrible deal. >> what was concluded in geneva last night is not an historic agreement, it's an historic mistake. like the agreement with north korea in 2005, this agreement has made the world a much more dangerous place. >> imagine if you will what the reaction would be if the israeli prime minister had welcomed the deal. iranians would have been forced to instantly reject it. how far apart are president oba
